KARACHI: The ordinance of local bodies 2001 would be amended after mutual understanding with the coalition partners as it was decided during already passed resolution in Sindh Assembly at term ending of ‘SGLO 2001’.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah indicated this while addressing a news briefing to the journalists at the Chief Minister’s House here on Thursday.

Shah indicated that the provincial government bring local bodies 2001 temporarily and will be amended soon as it was earlier decided and in consultations with our coalition partners.

“We were against the ‘local government system 2001’ and when it was introduced in Musharraf regime, the PPP protested over its implementation because of many issues related with it,” he said, adding, its elections was conducted purely on non-party basis but PPP contest the election to remain part of democratic system.

He further said the groups who wanted to create wedge between coalition partners and sabotage the political friendly environment that was maintained during last three years by the ruling party wrongly portrayed the role of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). PPP had always served the Sindh province and would continue to do so as some groups wrongly presented us that the party only serving in some areas, he added.
